An SNL-like parody
After watching the first episode of this new show by IFC, I felt entertained.
This is a parody. Those who do not appreciate parodies should not bother. Spoils of Babylon feels like an extended Saturday Night Live skit. If you don't like SNL, don't bother watching.
Expect trite dialogue, bad special effects, and intentionally sappy acting. That is the point.
I intend to keep watching. I hope they can introduce some unexpected story turns that will keep the show interesting.
Kristen Wiig and Tim Robbins start out strong.
